Formatting guidelines

Papers should be submitted using the final camera-ready
formatting style, except for author names which should 
be omitted and replaced by the tracking number for
anonymous reviewing. Submissions must not exceed five pages
in camera-ready format. Overlength submissions will be 
rejected without review. Guidelines on the format of 
submissions are available on the ECAI 2006 Style Guide page.
Latex style files to support formatting of submissions are
also available. Final versions of accepted papers will be 
required to conform strictly to the formatting requirements 
specified in the ECAI 2006 Style Guide. Each accepted
paper will be allocated five pages in the proceedings.

ECAI 2006 also accepts posters. Each poster will have two
pages allocated in the proceedings. Posters must follow 
the same formatting guidelines as full papers, but paper 
length is limited to two pages. The front page must indicate 
'POSTER' as the type of submission. Submitted full papers can
be accepted as posters if the PC decides so. It will be 
possible for the author(s) to indicate whether they want
their submission considered as poster in case of 
non-acceptance as full paper.

Submission procedure

Paper submissions to ECAI'06 and PAIS'06 will be handled
using the ConfMaster system.
Submission is a two-stage process. In a first step (deadline
Feb. 8th) authors are required to register with ConfMaster. 
During registration the authors are asked to specify the 
paper type (ECAI, PAIS), keywords, and whether they are 
interested in acceptance as a poster in case of rejection 
as full paper. Authors are also required to submit an abstract 
of their paper.
The system will then assign a paper ID to each submission
which is sent to the contact author. Before uploading the 
paper (deadline Feb. 10th), the author information has to 
be replaced in the submitted version by the paper ID to 
facilitate anonymous reviewing.

We will only accept files in pdf-format. Note also that
contrary to earlier years we only accept electronic 
submissions through ConfMaster.
ConfMaster will be available for registration and submission
from January 23rd, 2006 at http://ecai2006.itc.it.


Poster submissions (deadline March 10th) should be sent
directly to the email-address 
ECAI06posters at informatik.uni-leipzig.de (2 pages in  the 
regular paper format, pdf only). Contrary to papers,
poster submissions are not anonymous. Authors are free to 
add links to background material if they wish to do so.

Together with your poster submission please provide the
following information (plain text in the email): title, 
abstract, authors, name and email address of contact author, 

If you have submitted a full paper with the option accept as
poster if rejected, then you do NOT need to also submit a 
poster. The decision about acceptance as poster will be made 
on the basis of your paper submission in this case.

STAIRS-06 submission information will be available soon at 


By submitting papers or posters to ECAI-06 and papers to
PAIS-06, the authors agree that in case of acceptance at 
least one author registers to the conference and presents 
the paper, respectively poster.

Multiple Submission Policy

ECAI 2006 will not accept submissions under review or
accepted for publication in a journal or another conference. 
Authors are not allowed to submit their papers elsewhere 
during the review period. These restrictions only apply to
journals and conferences and not to workshops or similar
specialised meetings with limited audience. ECAI 2006 also 
grants permission to submit papers during the reviewing
period to national AI conferences organized by ECCAI member

The title page should include the statement "This paper is
not under review or accepted for publication in another 
conference or journal".

Reviewing and feedback


All submissions will be subject to academic peer review by
the ECAI 2006 Programme Committee. Reviewing for ECAI 2006 
will anonymous. To allow for anonymous reviewing replace 
the authors line in your submission by the unique tracking 
number assigned after the submission of the summary form. 
Please avoid identifying self-references. Replace phrases 
like "We have shown in [n]" by "In [n] it has been shown ...".

Review criteria include: Relevance to AI (is the submitted
paper appropriate for ECAI?), Originality (does the work 
contain new ideas?), Significance (will the presented 
results have any impact on the field?), Technical Soundness 
(is the paper technically clean?), Presentation (is the 
paper readable and well-organized?), Scholarship (is 
relevant literature cited, is the scientific context
discussed appropriately?).

Notification of acceptance or rejection of submitted papers
will be mailed to the corresponding author by 10 April 2006.


The primary authors of ECAI-06 submissions will get a chance
to see the reviews for their papers and give short comments 
before the final decision is made. The author feedback phase 
will last 2 days and will take place March 30 and 31, 2006.

Conference Proceedings

The conference proceedings will be published and distributed 
by IOS Press on paper and as a CD-ROM. The authors will be 
responsible for producing camera-ready copies of papers, 
conforming to the ECAI 2006 formatting guidelines, for 
inclusion in the proceedings. The deadline for receipt of the 
camera-ready copy is 10 May 2006. Note that at least one 
author of each accepted paper/poster is required to attend 
the conference to present the paper.


The best paper of the conference, as selected by the ECAI 2006 
Programme Committee, will receive a prize sponsored by 
Elsevier Science. The authors of the 10 best papers will be 
invited to submit a revised version of their paper to a special 
fast-review track of the Artificial Intelligence Journal.
